Robbie Ray couldn't quite manage a quality start in Wednesday night's loss to the Dodgers, tossing six innings of four-run ball.
Ray struck out six and walked two in the contest. Three of the four runs against him scored in the third inning, when he allowed a pair of RBI doubles and an RBI single. With the loss, the 23-year-old southpaw dropped to 2-4 on the season. Despite Wednesday's relatively unimpressive performance against the Dodgers, Ray's pitched well since returning to the Snakes' starting rotation on June 5 and currently holds a 2.55 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. He'll try to rebound when he faces the Rangers in his next scheduled start. Jul 2 - 12:47 AM

Robbie Ray yielded three runs -- two earned -- in six innings Friday against the Padres.

Ray struck out five and walked none. He's the Diamondbacks' best starter right now, but he shouldn't be used in mixed leagues next week, what with his lone start coming against the Dodgers.
Jun 27 - 1:02 AM

Robbie Ray surrendered four runs -- three earned -- over 5 2/3 innings Saturday in a loss to the Padres.

A big setback for Ray, who had been on a roll since rejoining the Diamondbacks' starting rotation at the beginning of June. San Diego got to him for two walks and six hits, one of which was a Derek Norris homer. Ray will carry a 1.78 ERA into his next start on the road against this same Padres team. We'd expect the regression to continue.

Robbie Ray continued to throw the ball well, flirting with a no-hitter en route to seven shutout innings in Monday's win against the Angels.

The no-no was broken up with two outs in the sixth inning by Daniel Robertson. It was one of only two hits the lefty allowed on the evening along with two walks and three strikeouts. Ray has been dominant in four starts this year, owning a 1.09 ERA with a 0.97 WHIP and a 16/7 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He won't be nearly this good over a larger sample of starts, so prospective fantasy owners should be cautious. Ray matches up with the Padres at home next.
Jun 16 - 1:09 AM

Robbie Ray pitched well but stumbled late, ultimately taking the loss despite allowing only two runs in 6 2/3 innings facing the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Ray had shut the Dodgers out through five innings, but relented a solo home run in the sixth to Howie Kendrick. In the seventh, he got two quick outs, but walked Chris Heisey before being lifted from the game. Addison Reed came in and eventually let Ray's runner score. Ray, overall, gave up four hits, walked four, and struck out four. The lefty has pitched well in two starts since being reinserted into the rotation and now owns a 1.53 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and a 13/5 K/BB ratio over 17 2/3 innings. He'll take the hill versus the Angels in L.A. next.
Jun 10 - 12:47 AM

Robbie Ray pitched well in his return to the Diamondback rotation, tossing five innings of shutout ball against the Mets on Thursday.

Ray is getting a chance because Archie Bradley is dealing with a shoulder injury and against the Mets, he allowed six hits over five shutout innings while striking out four without walking a batter. In 26 innings covering six starts in 2014, Ray held a 7.62 ERA, 1.846 WHIP and 17/10 K/BB ratio. The 23-year-old southpaw does have some talent, but owners in deeper leagues who may be interested should keep in mind that Ray doesn't have a great major league track record yet.
Jun 5 - 1:19 AM

Diamondbacks recalled LHP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Reno.

Ray will join the Diamondbacks' starting rotation on Thursday against the Mets with Archie Bradley (shoulder) heading to the disabled list. Ray was terrific in a spot start last month against the Rockies, but he's probably going to be a risky fantasy play for however long he's up.
Jun 4 - 1:07 PM

Robbie Ray was terrific in his 2015 debut, limiting the Rockies to one run over six innings to pick up the win in the nightcap of Wednesday's double-header.

Ray was called up from Triple-A Reno and occupied the 26th spot on the roster as a result of Wednesday's double-header, taking the place of the injured Archie Bradley. The Rockies couldn't get much going against him, scratching out five hits and no walks while striking out five times. Their only run came in the bottom of the fourth when Michael McKenry hit an RBI double to tie the game at 1-1. If the D'Backs need Ray to start again, he'll be on schedule to do so on Monday at home against the Nationals.
May 6 - 10:05 PM

Robbie Ray is expected to be recalled to start in place of the injured Archie Bradley on Tuesday against the Rockies.

Can't ask for a much tougher test in his first start of the season, as he'll battle the lefty-mashing Rockies at Coors Field. While he could be worth a look in NL-only leagues, he isn't a mixed league streaming option for Tuesday's start.
May 1 - 8:34 PM

Robbie Ray fired three scoreless innings in Wednesday's 3-0 Cactus League win against the Reds.

Ray allowed one hit, walked two, and struck out three. The lefty has had a rough spring, losing out on a chance to join the starting rotation, but he reportedly remains in the running along with Archie Bradley for the final spot in the Diamondbacks' bullpen.
Apr 1 - 6:37 PM

Robbie Ray yielded two runs over three innings as the Diamondbacks lost 6-0 to the Rockies on Sunday.

Ray gave up five hits and a walk while striking out four, watching his ERA rise to 5.25. The lefty is one of several candidates vying for a spot in the Diamondbacks' starting rotation but his spring performance may leave him on the outside looking in.
Mar 22 - 7:43 PM

Robbie Ray struggled in his Diamondbacks debut on Friday, allowing two runs on two hits over his two innings of work against the Athletics in Cactus League action.

Ray also issued a pair of free passes and punched out one. The 23-year-old southpaw is one of many candidates trying to crack the Opening Day rotation and he'll need to show improved command and results if that's to be the case.
Mar 6 - 8:20 PM

Diamondbacks acquired LHP Robbie Ray and INF Domingo Leyba from the Tigers in the three-team Didi Gregorius trade.

Ray came over to the Tigers last winter in the Doug Fister deal and now he's on the move again. The 23-year-old struggled to the tune of an 8.16 ERA over six starts and three relief appearances during his first taste of the majors this past season and averaged just 6.7 K/9 in Triple-A, but he's not too far removed from being a highly-regarded prospect. The Diamondbacks are banking on his long-term upside.

Tigers recalled LHP Robbie Ray from Triple-A Toledo.

Ray holds a 7.09 ERA and 1.80 WHIP at the major league level this season. He'll be used in a relief role.

Tigers optioned LHP Robbie Ray to Triple-A Toledo.

Ray was shelled for six runs in just an inning and a third against the Twins. After the game, the Tigers sent him down to Triple-A to nurse his wounds. His numbers at the major league level are a bloated 7.09 ERA and 1.80 WHIP.
